Product Description

Product Description

Deluxe five disc (four CD + DVD) edition includes original album, bonus eight track rarities disc, a disc containing the remastered Thrillington album (Ram instrumentals), a disc that features the mono mix of Ram plus a DVD that includes rare footage. Digitally remastered edition of this 1971 album from the former Beatle. Ram is the only album to be credited to both Paul and Linda McCartney and has gone down in music history as one of the most revered in McCartney's catalog. Features the hit single 'Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey'.

Technically, it was Paul and Linda McCartney, since this album was very much a collaboration between them. Some of the material was of the standard we expected ("Monkberry Moon Delight", "The Backseat of My Car", "Uncle Albert/AdmiralHalsey"), but somehow it all seemed entirely too whimsical, as if they'd spent a bit too long isolated on the farm. It was the expectations that were the problem, of course. Paul was simply making a light-hearted album, and we wanted earth-shaking pronouncements. Take Ram on its own terms (i.e., fun), and it's thoroughly enjoyable. --Chris Nickson --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Honestly, sometimes I despair at the elitist critics who go on about how great 'good, honest, rock'n'roll' is, and then at the same time extoll angst, alienation and seriousness as essential to the music. Not that 'serious', tormented songs aren't good- often they can be quite powerful, but originally rock'n'roll was fun, not meaningful. Paul McCartney got a lot of stick from critics for releasing an album that was silly and fun- complete anathema to them. It was, and is, also musically brilliant pop music. The chord-changes, song sections, and hooks are vintage McCartney, although "The Back Seat of My Car" is a successful copping of the Brian Wilson style of composition. (McCartney was and is a huge fan of "Pet Sounds") The reason why this isn't quite as good as the best Beatles albums isn't that these songs are of significantly lower quality than the songs he did for the White Album and Abbey Road. In fact, these songs remind me a lot of those songs. And they aren't really more slapdash, silly or whimsical than a lot of his late Beatles songs. Imagine, though, putting together all the McCartney songs on the White Album, and a couple from Abbey Road, together on one album, and you'll get an album sounding a lot like this one. Great, yet missing the Lennon and Harrison songs to balance them out.
The silliness, like the voices on "Uncle Albert", was like a red flag to critics. It seemed like he was having too much fun putting together this album, not sweating over it like a genius determined to put out a masterpiece or nothing at all.
Many criticise Linda McCartney's singing. I find it's mostly quite good- better than Yoko's- although her singing IS annoyingly whiny in places on "Long Haired Lady".
Love that ukelele on 'Ram On'!

Ram... Wow...!
This album has so much going for it, where do I start?? I'm going to steer clear from the usual review blabbing and give you a technical review of this album.
First off, this album was rated 5 stars because everything is just plain great! The recording/mixing, instrumentation, vocals, melodies, and lyrics.
Yes it's true that critics didn't like it at first listen when it was released, but they grew to love it and it has ended up it's own little piece of art. Songs like 'Monkberry Moon Delight' with it's playful, meaningless lyrics threw the critics off a bit at first (Although if the song would have been given co-writing credits to a Mr. Lennon, the world would have thought it was genious). It's an eclectic work that finds Mr. and Mrs. McCartney writing great melodies and hooks, but just having fun and trying not to try too hard! (Get that?? good!)
What makes the album work as a whole comprises of two elements... The 'Recording/mixing' and the overall 'arrangements' of the songs. Each track has a totally different feel from the next, and it keeps you on the edge waiting for what is next. The arraingements are all excellent as well. McCartneys vocal stylings have a lot to do with the diversity of the album. His stylings ranged from singing folky, to hard rock, to classical, to comical.. He's all over the place.
Buy it, you won't be dissapointed!
All the best, The AndyMan!

I find it funny but nice that people are discovering this album for the first time in recent years. I wore this album out back in 1971, when I was 11. It is my favorite Paul McCartney album. It has his best hit single - "Uncle Albert/Admiral Halsey." I remember driving to California from Texas with my parents and this song came on the Western radio stations long before it reached Dallas. We heard it constantly on the radio. "Dear Boy" on the album precedes "Uncle Albert" and it is a perfect segway. If you like RAM, I think you will also like "Red Rose Speedway." RAM is a must for any Beatles/McCartney fan.

This LP is simply stated...incredible. The remastering crew deserve top honors. I first purchased this back in the 70's and loved it then. Still my favorite PM album and probably a desert island top 10 pick. If you are getting back into vinyl, this should be a must have. Of the 15 LP's I've recently purchased, this stands head and tails above all the rest for dynamics and detail.

It took at least 30-40 years for the world to wake up and realize Ram to be the masterpiece it is.
Paul was unjustly criticized in 1971 for releasing what critics termed a "lightweight effort"
But, in all honesty, how does one follow up "Abbey Road"?
The complex arrangements on Dear Boy, the grand orchestrations on Uncle Albert and Back Seat of My Car, the biting satire of Too Many People.
And, the remastering here is so great, it's like listening to "Ram" all over again.
This album is definitely worth revisting, and it's pleasures are many.

I had forgotten just how good this CD ( LP ) really was. I think at the time we were spoiled for choice. You have to remember this was 1971 and we had new material by The Stones, Small Faces, Rod Stewart, Traffic, Ten Years After, Steve Miller, Boz Scaggs, s Even Muddy Waters was still making music, Seals and Crofts and I could fill this whole page if I so chose. While the Beatles had just split there were the single efforts to listen to from John, Ringo, and George was burning up the airwaves with all manner of stuff. So Paul's effort "Ram" tended to lose a little of its rightful place when there was so much more to choose from. Now we hit the roof over even a single one of these bands releasing again, back then every single one of those bands were releasing every year in fact we were so spoiled that we would get upset when someone didn't release every 8 months. We got really indignant expecting things as if they were our right. Listening to Ram with Fresh Ears I find that it is a great deal better than I thought back in the day. McCartney had yet to develop that trademark recipe of 2 decent tunes, 2 half decent tunes, and the rest pure garbage he was still producing music with heart, pop to be sure but at least it still had heart...
